Sorry, but Nissan and Infinity have the most INCONSISTENT quality control of all the Japanese cars. Does this happen even after the car is warmed up? You may need a transmission overhaul.

Unfortunately, not all CVT transmissions are the same, and Nissan is one of the worst. See this, http://forums.nicoclub.com/2004-altima-3-5-se-cvt-problems- t276260.html

Good luck. I would get rid of this car before it causes you further problems down the line.
